Hi all been awhile - thought I'd pop in and say Hello
« on: January 16, 2019, 10:29:06 PM »
Used to run by the name of HAPPY ONE -

We still have both our cars : 68 red Convertible and the 69 Raven Black M Code Mach 1 - fitted with the 429

Heap's going on of late in my world, but I thought I'd check out what everyone else is up too ?

See a lot of old familiar user names still active, which is really great to see.

Cheers everyone   :smilies:

Jiffy,

Not an original being an M Code  - as it was originally a 351

purchased this off Matt & Sheri - Shermatt about 4-5 yrs ago ........convertible purchased roughly about 10 yrs ago and still going strong.

Hi Lee, How am I going ….man that's a loaded question. ….But to sum it up "Really" good now Lee.


Without going into a lot of boring details, I had a lot of lower back issues and had to have my S1, L5 and L4  Caged and pinned …..all fine now like brand new actually better then new,  but it did screw me over for awhile......it took being a grumpy prick to a whole new level   :lol: :lol:

I'm also still running the business my cousin and I set up 2.5 yrs ago Waterwise Solutions Pty Ltd that's going great guns  …...and …..wait for it ………...Monique and I have just launched another company we have been working on for two years called  "American Muscle Car Parts Down Under - AMCPDU - which is located down at Loganholme. We are Authorised distributors for Scott Drake Automotive Parts …..and just launch our website a few days ago

Must catch up for a beer mate ---- hope you have that car on the road by now ?

Lets catchup for a beer ? ...let me know when you are in the Loganholme area or swing by our home


 :cheers: :cheers:

mwizz ...how you going buddy

Yeh the black one " which I call Mach Vadar ...is my problem child .......she's a bitch to drive as she just wants to unleash all the time and the mongrel is a pain to keep cool - still needs some more tweeking mods on the cooling system,  but we'll get it there. We have done a fair bit of work on it replaced all the suspension front and back and steering gear. Putting a hoist down in our new AMCPDU warehouse / shop will help heaps to sort out a few more things.

The red vert is still considered our fun ride and we need to get them out more for sure

Good to be on the scene again

Yeah - thought it would be a tight fit - although it does look good.
Mine had a 460 in it when I got it, almost had to cut it out!

Hi Glenn 70,

Yes well funny thing is I just cant remember my old Password to the Username Happyone - must be getting old and feeble minded.   :grin:

Hope all is going well for you mate -- and I also hope our new shop being located at Loganholme is not too far for you to visit at some stage.

Cheers

Too easy Ed,  I'm only at Meadowbrook so 10mins away, I'll probably pop down one Friday arvo but I'll give you a call on the Thursday.
If you can get me a price on a 1 1/8 front swaybar,  I' in no hurry so when ever you get your next shipment.

Guys it looks like Peterp has my old login sorted out so I will be shutting down my Blackmach429 login and reverting back to Happy One 

I will load up a new post so you have our details etc.

Thanks Peterp for your help mate.
